Goldberg Segalla

The world’s largest live entertainment company. National publications and Hollywood studios. Financial and insurance industry giants. A Midwestern mom-and-pop store facing hundreds of claims from a chip-
reading scam.

A representative selection of John Stephens’ clients speaks volumes about his practice and personality: He handles novel IP and media transactions, provides insurers with comprehensive coverage counsel, and (as a Certified Information Privacy Professional) he advises clients on data liability and breach-response practices. John also crafted a “soup-to-nuts” suite of legal services for live entertainment festivals and events, which has become the proven model for the most prominent companies in that field.

For over twenty years John has been riding the coming crests in emerging tech, new media, and the law — and his passion is counseling and protecting others, from the wavemakers to the individuals and small businesses caught up in the swell.

John’s home, Goldberg Segalla, is known as a powerhouse in complex commercial litigation and transactions, trusted trial defense and regulatory counsel for major manufacturers, boutique-style counsel in areas like professional liability and toxic torts and environmental law, and a source of sophisticated insurance and reinsurance solutions. All these things and more, GS is the fastest organically growing law firm in the U.S., as Law360 reported. As chair of the Cybersecurity and Data Privacy practice, vice chair of the Sports and Entertainment practice, and leader of the Los Angeles office and all west coast operations, John reflects the comprehensive capabilities and dynamic service GS clients across the nation expect.
